Thank you everyone. It's good to be back in the chair.
I look forward to another great session with FOPO. I think in the past we managed to do some exciting and valuable work. Some of it we didn't finish and maybe we'll get a chance to do that in this session.
I think everyone will find I'm more than fair, and a bit firm when the time limit is up, but I'll try my best to make sure everybody gets to say exactly what they want to say.
I thank you all for your support.
If the committee's in agreement, I invite the clerk to proceed with the election of the vice-chairs.

Mr. Chair, when the time is appropriate, I would like to file a notice of motion on the following:
That given the decline in pacific salmon stocks and the ongoing situation with Big Bar Landslide, the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans undertake a study on the state of Pacific Salmon and make recommendations on next steps to ensure for the long-term health of these stocks, as well as the commercial, indigenous and recreational fisheries that depend on them, and call witness including senior departmental officials, First Nations, and relevant stakeholder groups to testify before committee.
I move that we adopt that motion.

Are you moving it now, or just giving notice that that motion will come forward?

I'll look to the clerk, but I believe we have to give notice of motion because we haven't had the 48 hours.

We can deal with it now, because we're in committee business. You can move it now, and you don't have to give notice first.
